YIN YAN BAND UKULELE SESSION – Thursday 12.30pm to 1.30pm – fancy the idea of being in a band and becoming a music legend in your lunch break? Join the YinYanBand! Not musical/can’t play? No problem – just because you can’t play an instrument yet doesn’t mean you’re not musical, if you like music you are musical & we will help you learn! Not got an instrument? Borrow one of our ukuleles (£25 deposit) and if you like it you can keep it!
18 months ago we started the 1st YinYan Band in an like Metro – they didn’t have a clue what they were getting into and none of them had any musical experience/skills – now they play all sorts of gigs, events & festivals and they all say joining the band is one of best things (mostly THE best thing) they’ve ever done! Get involved in the YinYan Band here with starter tips, song sheets, videos and more and if you still need convincing discover 5 top reasons why it’s good to join our band.
Maybe you’d like too meet on Fridays too, or want to see if we can provide a teacher, maybe you’d like to try with a few friends first and want to book some ‘ukes’ for a bit? If you have an idea for the YinYan Band at Metro please email [email protected] or speak to the friendly staff at Metro reception!
